Wisconsin announces hiring of new TE coach with ties to Luke Fickell
Wisconsin officially named Nate Letton as its next tight ends coach on Friday afternoon.
Letton previously coached tight ends under Luke Fickell at Cincinnati in 2022. He was also a graduate assistant for the Bearcats in 2021 and 2020.
“I’m excited to be at Wisconsin and help carry on the tradition of success at this program,” Letton said in a statement. “The tight ends room is known for developing really good players here and I’m eager to help our guys achieve the standard that has been set.”
Here’s the announcement:

Last season with the Bearcats, Letton coached 1st-team All-AAC tight end Josh Whyle. He finished the year with 32 catches for 326 yards and 3 touchdowns.
Letton replaces Gino Guidugli, who left his role of Wisconsin’s TE coach earlier this month to become the next QB coach at Notre Dame.
